    Saddle up to one of the shop's high-top tables and order one of Link's killer sandwiches (the house muffaletta and cold roast beef are recommended) and take a pound of andouille sausage to-go. Read more

    Cochon Butcher isn't just a fantastic butcher shop and deli hiding behind the famed Cochon - it's home to crazy good small plates, a decent bar, and the best sandwiches in town. [Eater 38 Member]

    A meat-lover's paradise. Love everything at this place, but don't miss the Fried Alligator, Fried Boudin, Rabbit & Dumplings, and Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie. Read about it on WinstonWanders below!! Read more

    Mac and cheese is very good. Cuban,BBQ pork, and Le Pig Mac top sandwiches to try. Everyone is super friendly. Also don't be shy to ask to try their sausage. They would gladly let you sample it.

    Incredible house cured meats and sandwiches from Donald Link. Try the smoked pastrami by the pound. Eat the muffuletta, BBQ pork sandwich, and pretty much anything else that catches your way.

    Though some muffulettas are served cold, at Cochon Butcher the bread is toasted and the meats are warm, held together with a generous spread of house-made, slightly briny and bright olive salad. Read more

    Get the sweet and spicy brisket sliders, Brussel Sprouts, homemade chips and the must have libation, the Honey Boo Boo. Just delicious! Great ambiance and worth coming out to. Loved it

    I really recommend the smoked turkey sandwich. Bought 1lb smoked turkey(delicious), a package of 4 boudin sausages(VERY hot) plus a slice of lemon cheesecake(really really good)

    Had the pork belly sandwich. Really good, the meat was tender and the sandwich was flavorful. Wish it was a little bit bigger and had a different type of bread. The bread can get soggy fast

    Cochon Butcher is a wonderland for meat-lovers, the Willy Wonka Factory of delicious deli-meats, and for in our opinion, the Cold Roast Beef sandwich is the golden-ticket.

    It gets pretty busy here but worth the wait. It's owned and run by the next door restaurant, Cochin, where Butcher is the more casual restaurant. You can eat in or order to go. Everything is delicious

    Muffuletta, Cajun Dog, coleslaw and brussels sprouts were spot on. Be sure to try the sweet potato habanero hot sauce if you need an extra kick on your tasty sandwich. Great lunch spot in New Orleans

    This is for the regular Cochon- Def for the adventurous eater. Faves included oysters w garlic chili, pork rillette, liver cheese, head cheese. Fun to get a bunch of small plates, perfect for sharing.

    I had the ryals pit smoked ham sandwich with thin onion rings and a light mayo based sauce. My wife had the pull pork sliders and said she could eat teM all day long! Love their sweet potato hot sauce

    NoLa must for authentic Southern eats & soul food classics. Belly up to the bar for well-mixed cocktails, try the ribs w/ pickled watermelon & don't miss the Louisiana Cochon. You can thank me later.

    Calling itself a "butcher shop and swine bar," they serve the best muffuletta in town and some damn good boudin. Everything else is good, too. [Eater 38 Member]

    We had the Muffaletta and the Moroccan Spiced Lamb. They were both great! The Muffaletta was enough to share. Ordered a side of potatoes salad and loved it.

    Links casual venture situated next Cochon has a poo culture atmosphere highlight by uniquely named drinks and butcher shop favorites with a twist. Try Rock'n Rye and the Sweet Potato Jalapeño sauce

    My heart weeps when I realize I live 1k+ miles away from here. At Cochon: cheeks, fire roasted oysters, and the perfect oyster bacon sandwich. Butcher is HIP- bacon melt was the stuff of dreams.

    This is another very legit version of boudin. It's a little murky because of the seasoning, which works perfectly with the creole mustard for dipping and the chilis on the side to make it all pop. Read more

    This NOLA hot spot makes sandwiches with a Cajun slant. Order the Muffaletta, which is sliced capicola, mortadella, salami and provolone on a fluffy sesame seed bun. Read more

    The best meal I had in New Orleans, and it was a simple sandwich. Pork belly on toasted white bread is transcendent. Service was spectacular. Go here. Don't fear the lines - they move quickly.

    Looking for a quick dinner, off the French Quarter and walked into this place. One of the best decisions I've had in NOLA. Truly delicious meal and a great spot to just sit and enjoy.

    My dinner was good, but the desserts are incredible. Get the banana pudding. Also, we sat outside and really enjoyed it. The ambience inside is casual and cool, but gets louder as it gets late.

    Overall phenomenal. Get the cochon for sure, it's like a pulled pork hamburger patty which has been pan fried. Great whiskey selection as well, which isn't so filling, so you can eat more.

    Elegant, classic & must on any NOLA itinerary. If you're in a large group, order a lot of small plates to sample all this James Beard award winning joint has to offer. Wash it down with a Tina Louise

    Muffaletta wich. Takeout lunch joint with an extensive sandwich menu. Around the corner from the famed Cochon, Cochon Butcher is a beer/wine bar and meat market combination in the Warehouse District.

    This place is awesome. Tried the Brussels sprouts, Mac and cheese, cubano, muffuletta, and pork belly sandwich. All were great. Skip the muffuletta unless you love 'em. Other options are better.

    The pimento cheese fritters are to die for!!! Try the braised broccoli salad! Best seat in the house is at the kitchen bar! It's amazing to watch the kitchen do their magic!!!

    Great boucherie plate. Ask for the special bourbon, whiskey, and rye listing. Pineapple upside down cake for desert. Terrific service. What more could you ask for, great NoLa spot.

    Cochon Butcher's pancetta mac and cheese is more than just a side dish, with its decadent combination of cream cheese and sharp white cheddar, plus a hint of tomato paste for tang. Read more

    The Elvis king cake is filled with peanut butter, banana and house-cured bacon and topped with marshmallow and traditional Mardi Gras decoration. A small pink pig replaces the baby. @Gambit

    Everything here is good, but it's the wood-fired oyster roast that I never miss when I'm in NOLA. Perfect blend of heat and brine.

    Just unbelievably good. All homemade, such friendly staff, and yummy food. I sat in between two locals at the bar, one of whom eats there almost every day. Definitely legit!

    Can't miss menu items: the fried rabbit livers with pepper jelly and mint and the okra. If you need a break from booze, great fresh lemonade and Abita root beer on tap.

    Get the Buckboard Bacon Melt with swiss, collards, and pepper aioli. The smoky bacon on this sandwich, cut lean with a tender texture, is a perfect representation of what this shop is capable of. Read more

    I honestly don't think you can go wrong here. The short ribs small plate was very good. If I was planning a trip back to Nola, I would leave two nights for Cochon.

    There is no place in the world that's better. Oysters, pork cheek, Mac and cheese, stiff cocktail. Great small plates and counter seating by the kitchen for solo diners.

    Try the Cochon Muffaletta - Third time's a charm. This is insanely good, but very different from the traditional muffulettas, as it is served warm. But I loved it.
